Liz’s most recent Peeppl thread is up – complete with some audio – listen HERE
VSource Magazine: What was your reaction when you learned Chloe’s adorable daughter would be killed in a tragic car accident?
Elizabeth Hendrickson: It’s kind of a hard thing because you don’t want to kill a child, but there’s nothing more than wanting an emotional storyline that you can sink your teeth into. I had been wanting [one] for a long time, which I really haven’t had since [Delia] got cancer. So I was just happy to be a part of an emotional storyline that I was really excited to attempt and be challenged by as an actress.
TVSource Magazine: This is the kind of material most actors would give anything to have. Did you have any trepidation going into the filming of the episodes? Were you worried that you might be overwhelmed or were you confident you could handle it?
Hendrickson: Oh I was petrified [Laughs]. I think I was mainly scared because I thought that the cancer storyline was challenging enough when I first had that, but uh… I was just really intimidated because I don’t have a child. I’ve never experienced that unconditional love with someone – for someone. I mean I had a dog for ten years, but that’s not the same. I’m not even a sister. I don’t have a younger sister or brother. I really didn’t have that much to connect to in my own personal life. I think that’s what scared me the most – how I was going to find it within myself to tell a truthful story.
I’ve added to the Elizabeth Hendrickson Fan Gallery with caps from the first part of October.
